Jim Deese

Pastor - Stewardship

After serving Lifegate for 20 years, Jim is currently working in his “sweet spot” of church finances and business operations. He loves all the different aspects of his role. Jim has always felt the call of supporting ministry on his life. After God prepared his journey through Air Force service, a bachelor of science and masters in business administration, teaching accounting courses and years in the business realm, he fulfilled his calling by joining the Lifegate team in 1996.

Jim loves dating his wife, taking long road trips and college sports (especially Florida State football and baseball). He grew up in an Air Force family and moved 19 times before his 21st birthday.
